4-7-8 Breath to Fall Asleep Quickly

About this Class

If you're tossing and turning at night, this practice may facilitate relaxation and help you fall asleep in no time.

A 4-7-8 interval breathing practice acts as a natural tranquilizer for the nervous system, putting the brakes on the stress response. This technique has specifically been shown to help people fall asleep quickly, but it may also have long-term effects when practiced regularly, such as lowering the resting heart rate and blood pressure.
